I loved Beach Girls! At first I was critical, because Stevie Moore (Julia Ormond) looked older than Rob Lowe's character and they were supposed to be the same age and Nell's character is a little drab looking. However, when I got into it a little bit, it was really good. It had well thought out characters and a strong steady plot line. I haven't read the book, but if it is as good as the movie, I think I might. I am a big Rob Lowe fan but, the only thing I was disappointed in was Jack, Rob Lowe's character. He came across as a jerk, I hoped that it would get better as it went along, but he always came across that way. I was truly impressed with the actresses that played Clare, Skye, and Nell. Stevie ended up being a good character as well. I would recommend Beach Girls to anyone....I would also like to see more of these books made into mini series things...
